Datto vs Dropbox: what should I use for my business?

There are many storage services currently available. Since so much of the world has gone digital, people have more and more files on their computers and mobile devices that they need to store. As such, storage providers are competing with one-another to provide the best possible services to those who need to be able to store large volumes of files. One option that recently hit the market is the Datto Drive, and they are showing they have a great deal to offer. Let’s take a look at what Datto vs Dropbox (the incumbent) is doing for today’s post:

File sync and share can be costly for small businesses

Datto, the business continuity company, has put out a file sync and share service called Datto Drive. It is targeted towards small businesses. Datto saw an opportunity as they believed FSS providers tend to charge an exorbitant amount for their services. For example, Dropbox charges money for every user. This can make the service too expensive for the typical small business. Datto, on the other hand charges as little as $10 per terabyte, per month for a business. And, there can be unlimited users.

Putting businesses first

Unlike Dropbox, Datto has been optimized for business purposes. Datto Drive offers cloud-based file sharing that its users can access from anywhere in the world. And, it is backed up by the Datto cloud, which contains more than 180 PB of space. It allows individuals, who work as parts of these companies to centralize administration, eliminating storage silos–thereby maximizing productivity and collaboration.

What’s more, Datto also offers world-class support to take care of service upgrades and capacity management as well as a variety of other back-end procedures. It allows individuals tho protect all of their business data with ease, no matter what types of devices they are using.

Datto knows Dropbox has been the popular choice for small businesses in the category. That’s why they are enticing businesses with an insane offer to sign up for Datto Drive. Right now, the first million businesses to sign up will receive one free terabyte of storage for a year. For me, that’s enough to end the Datto vs Dropbox debate.
